Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD)
AMD (Age-related Macular Degeneration) is one of the leading causes of vision loss in people 65 years or older, according to Health Canada. AMD involves the breakdown of the macula of the eye, which is responsible for the sharpest part of your vision. A person with AMD may be able to clearly see a calendar on a wall, but the numbers and letters would appear blurred.
That's why it's so important for individuals over the age of 60 to visit their nearest FYidoctors location for regular, complete eye exams.
For additional information on eye health or to book a complete eye exam, visit an FYidoctors near you.
